JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli prison guards on Tuesday detained a woman visiting her son at Hasharon prison, a committee for prisoners' parents said.
Committee head Amjad Abu Asab said prison guards detained the woman because she was carrying a mobile phone, which is banned in prison visits. She said she forgot to take it out of her handbag before visiting the jail, Abu Asab told Ma'an.
The woman, who was visiting her son Shadad al-Awar, was held her for two and a half hours at the prison and then taken to Kfar Saba police station.
Al-Awar was detained on May 5 and is now banned from family visits.
